Biesterfeld Spezialchemie, Sytheon Extend Partnership


Biesterfeld Spezialchemie (Biesterfeld) and Sytheon Ltd., will extend their sales partnership, the former company announced.

The extended partnership will include Germany, Russia and Benelux, building upon the companies’ existing partnership in Spain. Additionally, Biesterfeld will expand its product portfolio by adding a range of proprietary and patented active ingredients for the cosmetics industry, with a focus on those which are nature-inspired. They mainly target problem skin (including acne and hyperpigmentation), skin aging, sun protection and hydration. These include:

  • Sytenol A—An active natural alternative to retinol, which acts as an antioxidant and is ideal for acne-prone skin and anti-aging products
  • Sytenol TC—A water-soluble active ingredient suitable for certified natural products; its raw material, based on the Ayurvedic plant Terminalia Chebula, is a global anti-aging active with anti-glycation and glycation reversal properties
  • HydraSynol IDL and HydraSynol DOI-Isosorbides which are oil-soluble moisture boosters issued from green chemistry, which help to build the skin’s natural protective barrier and re-establish the skin’s natural water homeostasis  
  • Synoxyl HSS—A photostabilizer for photo-sensitive ingredients including dyes, fragrances and UV filters; demonstrated to have an in-vivo SPF boosting effect of at least 50% for organic and inorganic sunscreens alike
  • Synovea HR—A brightener which targets eight of the melanogenesis pathways; also available in a synergistic liquid blend Asyntra SL, which combines hexylresorcinol and Synovea EL (INCI: Ethyl Linoleate), a lipid-soluble form of Linoleic acid which reduces hyperpigmentation

“Sytheon's highly effective and high purity active ingredients have enriched our existing portfolio, which is already extensive and interesting,” said Biesterfeld market manager, personal care Bettina Heick. “We are very pleased that we can now extend our existing collaboration with Sytheon to another five countries. Our sales team has the expertise needed, to tell our customers about the many different ways in which these active ingredients can be used.”

Added Francois Marchio, managing director, Sytheon, “In Biesterfeld, we have found a European partner that knows and understands how to promote high tech products, and has the technical expertise for supporting customers development projects.”
